Tec 40

Tec 40 Course training in Phuket, Thailand with Aussie Divers Phuket

If you’re interested in technical diving, but haven’t yet met the prerequisites for the PADI Tec 45 course or thePADI Tec 50 course, you can consider enrolling in the PADI Tec 40 course. It is the first subdivision of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver course and consists of the first four dives. Because you can do one of these dives in confined water (such as a swimming pool), many divers start the PADI Tec 40 courses in the colder wetter months, ready to continue in open water when warmer and clearer weather arrives.

You’ll learn to

Use decompression software and dive computers to plan and make decompression dives with no more than 10 minutes of total decompression and not deeper than 40 metres/130 feet.
Use a single cylinder of decompression gas with up to 50 percent oxygen (EANx50) to add conservatism to the required decompression.
Since it’s part of the course, your PADI Tec 40 course training credits toward the PADI Tec 45 course or PADI Tec 50 courses.

The Scuba Gear You’ll Use

You use recreational scuba equipment, with some minor additions to enhance your ability to deal with tec diving conditions.

The Learning Materials You’ll Need

You’ll use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak, which introduces you to

tec diving lingo
emergency procedures
decompression and stage cylinder handling
gas planning
The crew-pak includes a manual, dive planning checklist and dive planning slate. The optional Equipment Set-up and Key Skills video on DVD is a great tool to help you practice at home in between your tec diving adventures. You’ll continue to use the Tec Deep Diver Crew-Pak through PADI Tec 50.

Be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)
Be a PADI Enriched Air Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another organization)

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. If you want to become a certified scuba diver by doing the PADI Open Water Diver Course then the answer is yes. In the PADI Open Water Diver Course it is specified that you have to be able to swim 200 metres with any stroke and also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minutes. The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there [...]

PADI Discover Scuba Diving – Your Safety – Avoid the Risks – Phuket

Some years ago PADI introduced the PADI Discover Scuba Diving into their system. They did so to give divers a taste of scuba diving prior to signing up for the full PADI Open Water Course.
